The Cry of the Icemark

The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill 4 of 5 stars.
Thirrin Freer Strong-in-the-Arm Lindenshield: Fearless and flame-haired, the thirteen-year-old princess more than lives up to her impressive name. But when her father is killed and her kingdom, the Icemark, is threatened with invasion, Thirrin must become a true warrior, no matter the cost. Will fragile new alliances between Snow Leopards, Vampires, and Wolf-folk see her to victory? And can her budding friendship with Oskan, an intense young wizard, survive a war?((From back of book))

It is true that this story is filled with a variety of mystical creatures; Snow Leopards, Werewolves, and Vampires, but if you start this book expecting a fuzzy tale like Twilight you'll be in for a surprise.
I love this book! It is a wonderful fantasy with warfare and mythical creatures. The main character Thirrin is a strong young woman that will lead her small country into war against the greatest army her world has every known. Though it is a bit long it is still an enjoyable and well-written book. The world is crafted with utmost precision and attention to detail. I would suggest this book to ANY fantasy lover.

For fans of: Inheritance Cycle, The Two Princesses of Bamarre
